Hi, I'm Alexandra DiGrado (she/her).
I'm the owner of Boston Pelvic Physical Therapy. I'm a Doctor of Physical Therapy with advanced training and certification in pelvic floor rehabilitation through Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute. I am Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner Certified (PRPC) with over ten years of experience as a physical therapist and pelvic health expert.
I founded Boston Pelvic Physical Therapy because I'm passionate about decreasing stigma around seeking help to heal your private parts and to offer people of all genders a safe and holistic way to achieve a healthy pelvic floor and core.
My own labor and delivery experience informed my understanding of pregnancy and postpartum care and inspired me to do my part to help birthing people receive more support in their healing journey.
I received my doctorate degree in Physical Therapy and undergraduate degree in Rehabilitation Science from Northeastern University in Boston, MA. I have honed my skills as a pelvic floor specialist working at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston and Touro Infirmary in New Orleans.
I specialize in pelvic floor physical therapy treatment for people who are; pregnant and postpartum, experiencing menopause, prostate cancer, and other urogynecological cancers; and patients of all gender expressions with bowel, bladder, and sexual dysfunction across all adult age groups.
While living in New Orleans, I was a dedicated partner of the NOLA Transgender Institute, working with patients undergoing gender confirming surgeries. I am proud to serve the LGBTQIA+ community.
I am a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and Academy of Pelvic Health as well as the Global Pelvic Health Alliance.
I live just north of Boston, MA with my husband and our daughter and son. I love to read, exercise, and spend time at, on, or in the ocean.
Hello! I am Rachel Newall (she/her)
I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy. I graduated from Springfield College with honors and have extensive post-graduate training in pelvic health for all genders, sports medicine, and trigger point dry needling.
I have practiced the art and science of research based physical therapy for the past 10 fulfilling years, working with a wide array of clients to improve their health and wellbeing in relation to the pelvic floor and musculoskeletal dysfunction. I believe in the importance of listening and addressing both body and mind as well as helping you feel comforted and supported throughout this process. I love doing this work, forming a team between the client and myself to move towards our shared goal of helping you be able to do the things that make you happiest, whether that mean preparing for the birth of a child, recovering postpartum, sneezing without leaking, being intimate with a partner pain free, returning to fitness or any other personal objective.
I live just north of Boston with my beautiful family: husband, daughter and huge fluffy dog. Passions of mine include learning and staying up to date on research, traveling the world, hiking, rock climbing, yoga and painting.
